RECORDS ALL ROUND!
Ground softened by heavy rain before the start of the Show, beautiful weather during most of the Show, record numbers of entries, and record numbers of spectators together with wide coverage by BBC Radio Jersey, all combined to make the 60th Anniversary Show put on over three days at “Tamarind”, St Peter, a great success. And what is more, it all helped to boost the monies raised for distribution to purely local Jersey charities – over £8,000.
Large crowds of spectators, including HE the Lt Governor and family members, watched the thrilling puissance – the “big wall” – for which Sir John McColl later presented the trophy to the winner, Julie Lidgett riding Dark Warrior, and rosettes to the runners-up, together with Mrs Polly Snyman of Costcutter the Show’s major sponsor.
Over 70 classes of showing and jumping, for juniors, seniors and adults delighted their audiences during the three days, and gave great pleasure to participants, including the 13-strong contingent from Guernsey, who went away with some of the major trophies and prize monies, including the Senior Masters, won by Jodi Travers, riding Pickwick De Frieres.
It is small wonder that many local and Guernsey riders say this 3-day Show is their ‘favourite’ event of the year! And that is music to the ears of the small band of members of the organising committee who work tirelessly throughout the year to put on the best Show possible and - with the generous support and sponsorship of many local businesses and individuals - raise substantial sums for local charities.
